I think it would be fun to play from the Chamionship tees one round then the Ladies/Seniors the next time. Or alternate from hole to hole. Comment?
Do you ever play the other tees?

My home course is not that long, a little over 5,800 yards from the white. My driver has been a struggle but as soon as I get that situated this year I plan to start playing from the blues. I have played from the red tees as we move it around in practices. We also have a couples tournament at our course and we all have to play from the reds, definitely makes it interesting. I find it a nice change of pace.
I usually play the tees that are closest to 6400 yards but the other day I played the senior tees at a course that I have played several times. The Sr. tees are about 500 yards shorter so you'd think one would play better. But seems as if my second shots were always at a yardage that was between clubs and while the round was not a disaster it wasn't pretty in places either and ended with about the same score as I average from the longer tees. So it would appear that you need to play a set of tees a time or two as the course certainly changes some when you change tee boxes.
I wouldn't alternate different tees in the same day of a round. but, I would love to try from the white tees or ladies tee. just for the heck of it. last weds I played with a 3some that played from the white. I always play from the blues or the championship tees. I decided to stick with the blues just cause. maybe I will try the white tees next time to try it out.
Never play the back tees. My game doesn't support the extra distance. If I get paired with people playing them I tell them right off the bat I will be playing the white tees. Never an issue. When I was in SC I played the front black tees. And didn't care in the least, I need all the help I can get.
what tees depends on what group of friends i play with. at one local course playing the shorter tees kills me. on some holes the layout takes woods off the tee box out of my game and long irons off the tee are not my forte. luckily we have many different kinds of courses around denver with different challenges so i have had to adjust more to layout then just yardage.
Maybe next season I will have the game to play the back tees. I do like seeing players go to the back tees who shouldn't and hit the ball maybe to the front tees. It makes me laugh if they do this consistently. Ego is a terrible thing on the golf course and if you are the group behind them ugh you are in for a long day as they hit it a few feet over and over and than start really slicing as they try to swing for the fences to make up. I think there was another topic about this but oh well always good for a laugh imo.
